Question about NetGear MR814 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Have a new Hughes net HN9000 satellite service and trying to get the Netgear wireless router to allow me to connect to the internet. Have two other computer set up for the home network and they can see the Netgear router with full signal. Hard wired computer wont connect to the internet when the router is in place. Hughes moden plugged in direct to the computer works fine. Ping test for router also successful. Still wont connect to Hughes Modem. Sure it is a software something and tried to change the IP address on the Netgear router but was unable to do so. Tried about everything except something that will work.

    IP Address......:
    Subnet Mask......:
    Default Gateway..:

    Hughes HN9000 connected to computer Ethernet port with Ethernet cable (not USB). One came with the Netgear router and one came with the Hughes HN9000. With the Modem connected to the computer without the Netgear router all works fine and internet connection is acheived without issue.

    I got your answer and an answer from Netgear and between the two I was able to resolve the issue and got the system connected. You were right on with changing the IP address on the router and that worked. Darn router locked up when I changed them and then I could not access the router even with the new IP address. Had to reset it and make all the changes including the wireless connection (forgot them the first time) and then the LAN IP changes and once I unplugged the power and then reconnected power and the Hughes Satellite Modem everything worked. Still cant access the router but it is working so dont need to I guess. I want to thank you for your help and I sure hope I can return the favor someday. Thanks a million. Ray

    I appreciate the information sent. Satellite modem and router has same IP address and hence you are facing issue with the configuration.

    Follow the steps below to configure your router:

    1. Please remove all the connections from the router. Connect power to the router and then connect a cable from the computer into any of the 4 lan ports on the router. Make sure the modem should not be connected to the router or to the computer.
    2. Open up the Internet Browser (Safari, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, etc.).
    3. Put in address bar.
    4. On the basic setting page scroll to the bottom and click on Apply.
    5.Login to the router (User Name = admin Password = password)
    6. Click on lan ip setup under advance.
    7. Change the lan ip to and under use router as a dhcp server change the starting ip as and ending ip as, click apply and click ok for any popup message that arise.
    8. Once the browser display some error message like CANNOT FIND SERVER, ACTION CANCELLED etc, Connect the modem on the wan port of the router and restart the computer.
    9. Power off the modem and the router after making the connections.
    10. Power on the modem and wait till the light comes on it, then power on the router.
    11. Open the browser (Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
    12. Access the router (
    13. Login to the router (User Name = admin Password = password).
    14. Click on Setup Wizard and then select "Yes" and Click "Next" on the detection window.
    15. It should give you a "Dynamic IP Detected" or "pppoe detected"(type the username & password of your dsl account in case of pppoe detection) and then click next.
    16. click Apply.
    17. Logout of the router.
    18. Open up another browser window and try to access internet.

    Revert, if you face any further issues.

    I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

How to plug a WNR1000 Wireless Router into a Hughes net HN7000S modem

It should connect with an Ethernet cable. Looks like a phone cable but is twice as wide with 8 pins instead of 4. Plug one end into the modem's Ethernet output port and plug the other end into the router's single WAN/Internet input port.

Wndr 3300 net gear router wont work with hn 9000 hughes net modem

I went to the Hughes web site to check out the modem. They say it is also a router. I think you will have to disable the router abilities of your WNDR 3300 Net Gear Router.

Get into the Netgear setup by loging on to it.In its WAN setup select Static IP Address and set the Static IP Address to the same as the hughes modem, except for the last number which should be about 50 greater. IE: Hughes and Netgear

In the DHCP setup, disable the DHCP Server

In the Wireless setup, Give your network a name is SSID. You should also set up security to keep others off you internet connection with a WEP key.

I hope this helps.

Connecting D-Link DI-634M to HughesNet HN9000

I hate it when ISPs give you devices that dictate how your network has to be setup. They should just give you a modem which give a public IP to whatever connects to it.

For this to work you have to connect the cable from the hughes box to your router on one of the four regular jacks on the back NOT the internet/wan jack you would normally use.

Set the IP of the Dlink to
Subnet mask
default GW

This SHOULD allow the router to act like a switch. I have a linksys that has an option to make it function as an access point , which is what you need for this modem, but I dont see any option for the d link you have to do that.

Hughes have a knowledgebase which may be of some use to you.
